|NASA CONNECT: Patterns, functions & algebra : "wired for space" - NASA; Langley Research Center|
students will learn how patterns, functions and algebra can help NASA engineers design new ways of propelling spacecraft and how electricity and magnetism are being used to replace the fuel-consuming rocket propulsion commonly used to deliver a push to spacecraft. Students will discover three projects that use electromagnetism in a dynamic way: the Magnetic Levitation Launch System (MagLev), the Propulsive Small Expendable Deployer System (ProSEDS), and the student-designed Icarus satellite...

|NASA CONNECT: Breaking Barriers: Solving Linear Equations - NASA; Langley Research Center|
In this episode, students learn about supersonic aircraft while investigating the nature of science. They see how NASA researchers modify their work as they build powerful machines that push hypersonic records to Mach 10 and beyond. They also learn how NASA engineers and scientists use algebraic equations to help build models that will fly faster, longer and higher. By conducting inquiry-based and Web activities, students connect NASA research with the mathematics, science and technology they le...
